Slip of the tongue — or worshipful attitude toward an influential in-house player?

We’re going with “b,” and in all seriousness, it clearly was just a stumble of speech. But on CNN this morning, Jeffrey Toobin did call Chris Cuomo “Christ.” Toobin explained that he had somehow combined “Chris” with “correct” in response to a statement Cuomo had made.

The panel had a good chuckle at Toobin’s expense. Alisyn Camerota said, “your logic was that good.” Added John Avlon, “it is the season.” Cuomo also made a couple comments, but I couldn’t decipher them. Perhaps a reader with acute hearing can help!

Concluded Toobin: “I thought no one heard it. But I heard it!”

Note: the slip came during a discussion of the strategy of Michael Avenatti Stormy Daniels’ lawyer. It was agreed that he is trying to get the case out of arbitration and into court, where he could put Michael Cohen and perhaps even President Trump under oath and depose them.
